Life is a roller coaster isn't it? You must be experiencing a down time to be here looking for a therapist. How do we hang on in the tough times when we feel tired and overwhelmed? I had to learn myself how to manage anxiety, depression, panic attacks, childhood sexual abuse, trauma, and grief. I now consider it a privilege to walk alongside others who are looking to deal with their own concerns. I use traditional behavior therapy models like CBT, DBT, solution-focused and trauma-informed therapy. I also use humor as one of my own coping mechanisms and incorporate it into my counseling strategy. Let's talk and see if I can help.

If you’re looking for a therapist that just nods and asks: “How do you feel about that?”, then you better keep on looking. I have an interactive no BS and no sugar-coating approach that all my clients state has been extremely refreshing and welcoming to them in the therapeutic process. Self-empowerment, radical acceptance, and authentic human connection will be the cornerstone of our work. I utilize strength based, solution focused, and neuroscientific theory to guide us in your journey. This is about you—your stories, successes, traumas, hopes, and infinite wisdom! Sometimes we’ll laugh. Often, we’ll cry. Onward to self discovery!

I have over a decade of experience using both western (cognitive behavioral therapy, solution focused therapy, cognitive processing therapy, etc) and eastern (hypnotherapy, holotropic breathwork, auricular acupuncture, EMDR, etc) modalities to help my clients find their inner healing.
Mind, Body, and Spirit; all are important aspects of overall well-being and at some point in our lives, we all experience one, two, or all three areas becoming misaligned. The solution then is to find balance once again…and that is where I come in. Whether you are looking to change the thoughts and beliefs you have about yourself (mind), relieve bodily symptoms that have no medical explanation (body), or get connect to your higher self (spirit), I am here to help guide you to realignment. **Email/text are the easiest ways to get ahold of me as I am often in session**

Solution Focused Brief (SFBT) Therapists
Solution-focused therapy in Kalamazoo, sometimes called "brief therapy," focuses on what clients would like to achieve through therapy rather than on their troubles or mental health issues. The therapist will help the client envision a desirable future, and then map out the small and large changes necessary for the client to undergo to realize their vision. The therapist will seize on any successes the client experiences, to encourage them to build on their strengths rather than dwell on their problems or limitations.
